"These short stories capture the magic and mystery of men who are ready to sail into readers' hearts."
Neil Plakcy, the editor of Hard Hats, Surfer Boys,
Seamen: from mariners on huge yachts to competitive sailors in races like the America’s cup to recreational boaters, the combination of men and water is irresistible. Whether they’re wearing Speedos or slickers and handling megayachts or windsurfers, these guys can set sail right to our heart.
Neil Plakcy, the editor of Hard Hats, Surfer Boys, Skater Boys, The Handsome Prince and Model Men sailed the high seas and gazed through many a porthole looking for stories of navy men, yachtsmen, and even a pirate or two and the fun they get up to, on land and on sea. These naughty and nautical guys will turn you on with their large masts, from fresh-faced tan youths to the rich yachtie with silver flecks in his hair. Imagine watching those muscles work as they grind winches to set and control sails, steer from the helm, or tack a sailboard.
Neil Plakcy’s fiction has appeared in the collections Cowboys, Hot Cops, and Best Gay Romance. The editor of Skater Boys, Surfer Boys, and Hard Hats as well as the author of Paws and Reflect, he also writes the book column for GayWired.com. He lives in South Florida.

Sexy Sailors is a nice collection of sailor and sailing-themed stories. Whether you are looking for a sweet, romantic story or a more lustful encounter, you'll find it here. There's certainly a story for every mood. One of my favorites was "Heat Lightning" by Neil Plakcy: a cute and romantic budding relationship story about two men in their 50s. The bashfulness between the two characters was pretty darnn adorable. Other stories, like "Red Alert: Weapons of Mass Erection" by Loga Zachary, take a different tone. While funny throughout, this story is definitely more explicit in nature than some others, but I found it to be an interesting read. If you happen to find sailors sexy (or are just looking for something new), definitely flip through this--even if just for the laughs (one author uses "tentacle" as a name for a man's tackle--ha!).
